See the days of pioneer Appalachia brought to life by local families and other friends as the Foxfire Museum & Heritage Center hosts two days of living history. Adults and children will be dressed in 1800s period clothing, showcasing almost every facet of mountain life from 200 years ago. Cooking simple food in a stone fireplace, crafting wood furniture with hand tools, blacksmithing in a coal-fired forge, one-room schoolhouse classes covering the Appalachian "three Rs" (Readin', 'Ritin', and Religion), short church services, old-time kids' games, live traditional music -- all of these activities (and likely more) bring the museum to life as volunteers recreate the unsophisticated and fulfilling lives of the hardy folks that made the majestic Southern Appalachians their home.
On Friday, home-school families receive a discounted admission fee of $3 per person.
Event proceeds will help support the museum's mission of preserving the heritage of Southern Appalachia.
